There you will learn why this subtle brace system is growing rapidly in popularity.

Straightening the teeth reduces the number of awkward to clean areas where dental plaque can accumulate. With a good brushing and flossing routine and regular appointments with your dentist and hygienist, teeth straightening can cut your risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

If your bite is misaligned, this can affect your diet and, in some cases, make it hard to get proper nutrition. Unlike other cosmetic orthodontic systems, Incognito braces can correct significant bite issues. In some cases bruxism – grinding your teeth at night, which can cause headaches, ear aches, shoulder pain and, of course, worn teeth – can be helped by orthodontic treatment.

Incognito braces: the benefits

Incognito braces are made from metal, but unlike traditional brace systems they are attached to the rear, or lingual, surfaces of your teeth, which makes them invisible in everyday life, unless someone is looking directly into your mouth. Because this is likely only to be your dentist, orthodontist, or hygienist, nobody else needs to know you are having treatment unless you tell them.

With Incognito lingual braces, your orthodontist can correct a wide range of aesthetic concerns. Your treatment time will depend on the type and amount of correction that’s needed; your orthodontist will advise you of the predicted length of treatment when you come to our Weybridge clinic for an Incognito consultation.

Your Incognito braces will be carefully designed by your Weybridge orthodontist, using the latest 3D computer software to make sure that your appliance will fit your teeth perfectly.
